Lau­ren Brin­cat, Bree van Reyk
Molto Echo

13th – 13th November 2016
Museum of Contemporary Art

Molto Echo is a per­for­mance by Lau­ren Brin­cat and Bree van Reyk, a large-scale son­ic con­se­quences that res­onat­ed through­out the gal­leries of the MCA

The piece made the MCA walls move, inspir­ing change through dra­mat­ic action, draw­ing atten­tion to itself through an unnec­es­sary dis­tur­bance. The audi­ence and drum­mers took part in a musi­cal dia­logue — an infor­mal the­atri­cal activ­i­ty. The piece want­ed to be heard.

Molto Echo brought togeth­er a team of 7 rock’n’roll drum­mers who worked from graph­ic and text-based scores to cre­ate a series of sound-paint­ings played in response to cues from the museum’s vis­i­tors. The audi­ence mem­bers were invit­ed to par­tic­i­pate in the work by cre­at­ing son­ic cues for the drum­mers on a set of bells placed through­out the gallery. A small sound, ges­ture and inten­tion cre­at­ed an avalanche of action, com­mit­ment and res­o­nance (a Molto Echo).
